Eranove signed a concession agreement on 19 December for the 390MW Atinkou (Ciprel 5) combined-cycle gas turbine plant at Jacqueville. The agreement covers the financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance of the Atinkou power station, which means “house of light” in the Ebrié language. Eranove said the plant would be the first in sub-Saharan Africa to use F-class gas turbines. The plant will be located in Jacqueville, on the outskirts of Abidjan, to support a government initiative to encourage industrial activity outside the economic capital.
